VM242A

BasicMes-2

HANDHELD FLOW MEASUREMENT COMPUTER


PRODUCT DATA

Application
The BasicMes-2 is a handheld measuring computer for flow
measurements in hydronic heating and cooling systems.
The BasicMes-2 measures the differential pressure over an
orifice, for example a valve seat. Together with the kv-value of
the orifice the flow is calculated using the kv formula. The kvvalue of all Honeywell balancing valves as well as some
common valves of other manufacturers are stored in an internal
database. Manual input of the kv-value is also possible.
Apart from differential pressure and flow measurement the
BasicMes-2 has the following functions:
Two temperature sensor inputs for simultaneous (using two
sensors) or successive (using one sensor) temperature
measurements
Data logging function with programmable interval and duration
Leakage test with programmable test pressure and duration
Memory to save measured values
PC connectivity to download measured data from the device
onto a PC including PC user software

Design
The VM242A BasicMes-2 consists of:

Print function in combination with optional pocket printer


(accessory)
